Life Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Wonderful
I love finding quotes, especially ones that relate to my life and the situations that I am going through. I remember as a freshman in college I would look up quotes on positivity, change, and growth. Quotes have a very soothing effect. The right words strung together perfectly can make me feel as though anything is possible (which it is!).
For Christmas, I got my mom a magnet that says "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful." I think that during transitional periods, we all can get lost in what we believe the perfect scenario should be. When I was in college, I got so wrapped up in the idea of what college should be like that I forgot to enjoy it for what it actually was.
Now, as a post-grad I can relate to my freshman self a bit. This is unchartered territory and I have no idea what to expect. My entire world for 19 years was based around school. It is easy to think about what a "perfect life" would be like. However, instead of focusing on the negatives, I really want to take more time to appreciate the positives and be excited for what is next.
Post-grad life has the potential to bring travel adventures, learning opportunities, periods of growth, fun times, and happiness. Instead of sitting in a classroom learning and taking tests, I will be experiencing those opportunities a bit differently. I have the potential to learn new job skills, gain new life skills, relearn Greek, and learn how to improve my blog. It is up to me to seek out each opportunity and grow myself as a person.
I hope that whatever situation you are going through, you understand that life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful. It is all about enjoying the present moment for everything that it is.
